On the eve of a new Korn world tour to support their brand new album, “The Paradigm Shift”, Ray Luzier stopped by Ultimate Rhythm Studios to film a new episode for FullOnDrums.com. Ray’s first appearance on the show was way back at episode 3!
In episode 28 Ray performs Love & Meth and talks about the recording process for “The Paradigm Shift”. Since his big kit was packed up and ready to hit the road Ray threw down on the Batmobile! The Batmobile is a Pearl Reference kit featuring a 22″ kick, 10″ & 12″ rack toms, and 14″ and 16″ floor toms. The snare was one of Ray’s favorite 6″x14″ Reference snares. The kit was covered in Remo drum heads.
Ray brought a full assortment of Sabian Cymbals and beat the heck out of them with his signature stick from Pro-Mark.
